We are delighted to announce the full list of nominations for the RTS Cymru Wales Awards 2024 in partnership with HP with Intel.

Combining awards for Undergraduate and Postgraduate students in Wales, alongside programmes and programme makers in the industry, the event will be held at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama on the evening of Friday 12 April, arrival from 6:15pm.

Boarders Screening

Produced by Studio Lambert, the brand-new six-part series, created by award winning writer Daniel Lawrence Taylor, follows five talented under privileged black students from inner-city London as they gain scholarships at St. Gilberts, an elite boarding school.

As well as showing the first episode ahead of its transmission, there will be a panel discussion with the cast and crew to find out just how this new show was made.

The event will be followed by refreshments and networking opportunities.

5:30pm for 6pm screening.

The Way screening

Ambitious, powerful and surprising, The Way taps into the social and political chaos of today’s world by imagining a civil uprising which begins in a small industrial town. It’s an emotional and darkly humorous story about what it means to be faced with impossible choices.

The Winter King: Panel Event

As well as the first episode and a series preview, there'll be a panel with the series' cast and crew – focussing not just on the Welsh talent on both sides of the lens, but discussing how newcomers to the industry were able to get involved.

The Winter King stars Iain De Caestecker as Arthur, in this latest telling of the Arthurian legend based on Bernard Cornwell’s The Warlord Chronicles novels. Filmed in Wales and the West Country by Bad Wolf, it is set to hit ITV’s streaming services later this year.

Doctor Who: 60th Anniversary screening and celebration

The screening will be followed by a unique conversation between Russell T Davies and Jane Tranter, as they discuss their remarkable career paths to date.

There'll also be an opportunity to hear from some of Doctor Who's Screen Alliance Wales trainees.

Titled The Star Beast, the Doctor Who 60th Anniversary special features the return of David Tennant as the Doctor with Catherine Tate as Donna Noble. 

Sports Documentaries Panel

The TV Sports Documentary genre is enjoying a golden age across the world, with all broadcasters and content platforms commissioning a continuous flow of new programmes in this area; historical, observational, investigative or more traditional profiles, Sports Docs are everywhere you look. 

And the genre has exploded in Wales too, with the S4C, BBC and ITV schedules all bursting with feature length one-off sports stories and docu-series, plus many of our Indies have been busy making docs for network channels and the streaming platforms.
